Discover Isle of Wight

One of the United Kingdom's best treasures is the Isle of Wight, on its south coast. This small island is like Britain but has a lot of Victorian history behind it. Osborne House was one of Queen Victoria's favourite summer houses and as a result, many other Victorian aristocrats and celebrities went to Isle of Wight as a very fashionable place to go for a summer holiday. What could have attracted them were the dramatic yet beautiful cliffs and coastlines to the west of the island and the clear waters of the Isle of Wight beaches that are perfect for a quintessentially British summer family holiday.

Things to See

For animal lovers, you will be able to see many species of rare bat, red squirrels and dormice that are found nowhere else in the world but on this island. There are also so many other things to see on this fantastic island. Osborne House is one of the main attractions on the Isle of Wight but for more family-orientated activities why not go to Alum Bay and enjoy the beautiful scenery and multi-coloured sands.

Another activity that is bound to entice the kids is Blackgang Chine, a former gorge that you could walk through to get to the sea but has now been turned into a fantastic amusement park that caters for all ages.

Probably the two most famous features about the Isle of Wight are `the Needles' and the island's beaches. `The Needles' are amazing snow-white rock formations that come out of the sea like giant spikes, hence the nickname `the Needles'. The attractive, golden sand of the Isle of Wight's beaches combined with the hot, summer weather make the Isle of Wight the perfect short holiday destination.
